Book Sale – Artists and Crafters Heads Up!
I made these two boxes from repurposed hard back books (standard size) :
I’ve spent the last two days volunteering for Cobb County Library – assisting in the unpacking and sorting of books for their semi-annual book sale that starts tomorrow (Friday, March 8th) at 9 am and goes thru Sunday. The sale is held in two buildings at Jim Miller Park.
Considering our local book stores don’t have many books on book binding I wasn’t surprised to find that artists hang on to these books and don’t donate them. Don’t let that stop you from visiting the book sale. They have A LOT of books on other subjects (some vintage) that can be used as reference or collage.
However, if you’re a book artist or really, any kind of artist or crafter – you owe it yourself to check this out.
FOLKS!!! These are the sale prices of the books – NO BOOK over $1.50 !!! Even the large art books that cost over $60 in the book stores are only $1.50.
Some of the prices I remember:
Hardback Books : $1.50
Paper Back Books (standard romance, mystery, size) : $ 0.50
Paper Back Books (larger than standard) : $1.00
Reader’s Digest Condensed : $ .25 ea or $2.00 box
DVDs/CD’s : $ 2.00 ea or $ 4.00 boxed set
